    Default Your Top 3 Uncommon Fragrances.

    Good day people.
    What top 3 fragrances in your collection would you consider to be fragrances that almost no one has?
    Less fragrance is more.

    Hmmm... I'd say Montale - Aoud Lime, Baldessarini Eau de Cologne Concentree and Hugo Boss Elements are quite uncommon.

    I know that others own them, but you rarely hear about them.

    I have a large sample of one of a Basenotes poster's bespoke scents that's still a prototype ... so I'll go with that one.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    Uncommon on basenotes? Hhhmmmm... I don't know.

    Uncommon offline, at least where I live?

    - Interlude Man
    - Royal Oud
    - Hanae Mori HM

    Maybe you're thinking "Hanae Mori? Uncommon?!" In the real world, among men, I'd say that it is. I've never smelled it on anyone else and the feedback I've gotten from women while wearing it echoes that, which is part of the reason why I'd say it's one of my top uncommon scents. It's such a great mass appeal people pleaser, but it's not the same old same old that people are used to smelling on a guy.

    Then again, I could say the same thing about Gucci Pour Homme II. Or Millesime Imperial.

    I don't have a ton of fragrances that aren't well hyped. I don't go out of my way for the more obscure stuff given my limited budget.

    I do however have a bottle of Sean John Unforgivable Multi Platinum. That's probably the only bottle in my collection that fits the description for this thread.

    Uncommon in that they smell original?

    Dior, Jules
    Givenchy, Insensé
    Fueguia 1833, El Otro Tigre
    Weil pour Homme

    Uncommon in the sense that they are difficult to get?

    Pretty much everything I own is uncommon in my surrounding. The only one people recognize is Cool Water. But on basenotes, I might as well be a commoner.
